A new poster for the crime drama movie, Phamous has been released. It is directed by Karan Lalit Butani, and stars Jimmy Sheirgill, Shriya Saran, Kay Kay Menon, Pankaj Tripathi, Jackie Shroff and Mahie Gill. It is going to be released on June 1 2018. The trailer for the movie came out last month, and showed a narrative that involves, revenge, sex, violence and politics and how the characters struggle for power in hostile surroundings. The first poster of the movie was also impressive, and was reminiscent of westerns from Hollywood. All the characters in the trailer looked vibrantly written, and spouted dialogues that were witty and well placed. The movie looks more dramatic than realist in its portrayal of characters and the themes, but looks very entertaining.
The recent poster shows Jimmy Sheirgill in the centre of a bloody background, and flanked by other characters in the movie. The title of the movie is also written in Hindi and English, which only highlights the oddness of the project. The movie could appeal to people who love gangster dramas like Gangs of Wasseypur, where there is a balance in the storytelling and the character arcs.
The cast is also one of the most appealing factor in the project. Jimmy Shergill has established himself as one of the best character actors in Bollywood, and was critically acclaimed for his performance in Mukkabaaz this year. Pankaj Tripathi won a special mention at the National award this year, for his role in Newton. Mahie Gill has always been underrated for her performances and this seems another role for her to make a mark on the audiences. Shriya Saran also looks impressive as a seemingly passive wife.
